A note from our Treasurer:
Dear friends, 
As part of our commitment to St.Peter’s church , we pledge in order to support the ministries of the church and the daily operating costs.
We all know that support is VITAL,  but life in the summer can get in the way. Please, be encouraged to resume or continue your support.
If you have not made a formal pledge, be assured your offerings and donations are appreciated and contribute  to the support of our church. Everyone is important in moving forward as a Christ centered community. 
Thank you for being part of St. Peters.
Sincerely, 
Victoria Odell, treasurer

Food for our Freezer ~ Please consider making an extra dish this season to give to those in need. Please date and label your food items and place in freezer- proof packaging . Thank you.

Thank you for using the compost bucket in the kitchen!  We are saving a lot of food from the landfill and are creating great ingredients for our spring garden soil.  All food scraps and paper towels, napkins,  should go into this bucket and then it can then be emptied into the bin outside the kitchen door. Please continue to help our Mother Earth by returning food to the earth!
